At least 1,500 homes, businesses and other structures have been destroyed as more than 14 fires ravaged eight counties throughout Northern California late Sunday and Monday morning, authorities said.
The vast devastation over just a few hours made this firestorm one of the worst in California history, with Gov. Jerry Brown declaring a state of emergency.
No deaths have been reported, but there have been injuries and people are unaccounted for, said Janet Upton, a spokeswoman for the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. She could not estimate the number of injuries. Officials said fatalities were possible as search efforts continued....

ABC News Radio wrote: In the wake of the fires, the Sonoma County Sheriff's Office announced Thursday morning that it has arrested five people for looting in evacuation areas. Three of the individuals were Santa Rosa natives who were arrested and booked on a number of offenses. A 28-year-old man was found with two stolen bikes as well as narcotics, police said. A 48-year-old woman and a 49-year-old woman were also arrested, according to the Santa Rosa Police Department.
With mandatory evacuation orders still in place, many residents in the affected areas have been warned not to return to their homes until further notice.
"Life is more important than property," Sonoma County Sheriff Robert Giordano said at a press conference Tuesday.
He said he thinks the wildfires will be "one of the worst natural disasters in California history."

How am I deceived? I have a Baptist theology because I accept the Baptist doctrine of salvation which comes from the Bible. If I am deceived then so is everybody at that Baptist Church I attend on Sunday mornings because they all received salvation in the exact manner that I did. When I met with Pastor Steve to request Baptism I was questioned thoroughly by him to make sure that I was a proper candidate for Baptism. I was asked by Pastor Steve if I had accepted Jesus as my Savior and Lord or to put it another way if I had surrendered my life to Jesus and trust in Him alone for salvation. When I answered in the affirmative then Pastor Steve was satisfied that I was a proper candidate for Baptism via immersion as a public profession of faith that I had surrendered my life to Jesus as my Savior and Lord.

Brown is a total joke. He claims to be Catholic but he does not follow Catholic teaching on the subject of abortion and homosexuality because he supports abortion, homosexuality, homosexual marriage and the other perversions that go along with homosexuality.
